title: Logging All Headers in Client-Server HTTP Traffic layout: layout161 — Avi Vantage provides extensive logging options for virtual service traffic. Among these options is an option to enable logging of all headers in HTTP traffic between clients and servers. The option to log all headers is available for HTTP policies and for client log filters. HTTP polices and client log filters each are part of an individual virtual service’s configuration.


Enabling All Header Logging

Within a virtual service’s configuration, logging of all headers can be enabled in the following places:

These header logging settings for HTTP polices and for client log filters are independent of one another. For example, enabling all-header logging on the virtual service’s Analytics tab does not enable all-header logging in any of the HTTP policies on the Rules tab. Likewise, enabling the option in an HTTP policy does not enable the option for client logging or for the other HTTP policies.

Viewing the Header Information in Logs

All the logs can be viewed in the same place, on the Analytics page for the client.

To view client logs:

  1. Navigate to Applications > Dashboard.

  2. Click on the icon for the virtual service.

  3. Click Logs.

  4. (optional) Select the time period of logs to display from the Displaying pull-down menu.

  5. To display details for a log, click on the plus sign next to the log entry.
